Building a Vacuum Form Table
This page will show you how to construct your own vacuum forming table. A Vacuum Forming Table is used to form sheets of polystyrene into desired shapes determined by the molds used with the table. This table will be comprised of two main parts, The Holding Frame, and the Forming Surface. Some designs for Vacuum Forming Tables also include an oven. For this forming table we will use an ordinary kitchen oven to heat our plastic.
